Hello! My name is Will Southwell-Wright, I’m a Post-Graduate Research Student at the University of Durham. My research focuses on the social status of ill health and disability in Late Roman Britain, and more broadly in the Roman World, primarily through analysing burial treatment. Beyond that, I’m interested more broadly in a whole range of topics that spin-off from those areas.
I’ve started this blog as a means of getting my thoughts on a whole range of archaeological and non-archaeological issues down on ‘paper’, so to speak. I use most other online social networking and blogging sites for more personal matters, but I’ve fancied for a while now to have somewhere I can post about my more nerdy interests without exasperating my non-archaeological friends. I’m also interested in getting feedback and communicating more generally with the archaeological world, so here goes!
